Born to Run - S1-E22

Trivia: When Kate runs out of the MRI room, if you look closely at the sign, instead of saying "Magnetic Resonance Imaging" as it should, it says "Magnetic Resonance ImagINing". A clue, perhaps? Too big to be an unnoticed mistake.

Man of Science, Man of Faith - S2-E1

Trivia: During the opening scene, when the camera cuts to the cabinet of drugs (shortly before the explosion heard in the distance), all the bottles of drugs have 'the numbers' on them - '4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42'. Maybe obvious to some but worth looking out for.

The Moth - S1-E7

Trivia: In the midst of withdrawal, the third time Charlie asks Locke for his stash Locke finally hands it to Charlie, who stares at the bag of heroin. On the DVD commentary, Dom Monaghan remarks that while he holds the bag of heroin (really brown sugar, but hey) he's "doing a Gollum" - using Andy Serkis's portrayal of Gollum, and his desire for his "Precious" as the basis for Charlie's intense need for the drug.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Trivia: When the idea was to kill off Jack in the pilot, the writers discussed Michael Keaton for the role.

Exposé - S3-E14

Homecoming - S1-E15

Trivia: When Charlie meets the wealthy lady in his flashback scenes, she mentions that her father is buying a paper company up in Slough, an obvious reference to the UK version of "The Office" which is about a paper company in Slough.
